On April 14, at approximately 10:50 p.m., Shelburne RCMP responded to a 911 call of an intoxicated and violent man at a home on Harding Boul. who had just threatened to kill the homeowner. While RCMP officers were responding to the scene, a second call was received of a break-in at another home on Harding Boul. where the same man asked if anyone wanted to fight before leaving.
